Recharge The AC Freon In Your Car Or Truck

Your truck or car's AC system is almost completely airtight, but your freon refrigerant is always slowly leaking out. Eventually, a car will lose enough freon so that its air conditioning system will no longer cool effectively. At CARma Auto Care at 13 Ida J Gadsden Dr we are ready to recharge your AC to help you keep your car or truck's cabin temperature cool.

"Help My AC Only Blows Warm Air!"

New advancements in R134a freon systems means that freon in newer cars doesn't leak out as much as old R12 freon systems. The average new model economy car only leaks about 0.41 ounces of refrigerant per year. Come to CARma Auto Care in Savannah when it's time to recharge your AC freon.

CARma Auto Care's Fast 3 Step Process:
  • Vacuum out all the old refrigerant before refilling it.
  • Add new R134a refrigerant.
  • Pressurize your car's AC system and test for mico-leaks.
"Does CARma Auto Care Have R12 Freon For My Classic Car?"

Unfortunately R12 freon is no longer available. If your car or truck was made before 1994 you must convert your entire AC system to the new R134a standard. This involves replacing dozens of seals and several AC auto parts. R134a is a more highly pressurized and much more efficient refrigerant pound for pound than R12. Most classic car AC compressors and condensers cannot withstand the intense pressure required and choose to add about 25% less freon to accommodate older systems. This means your AC may not cool as well as it used to. Converting your R12 system to R134a is a big job so stop by CARma Auto Care today and talk with our mechanics about getting the job done right. Visit us today at 13 Ida J Gadsden Dr.

"Is Used Freon Ok?"

Many auto repair shops resell used AC refrigerant. The old freon is cleaned using a specialized recovery machine that removes contaminants. Used freon provided by CARma Auto Care works just as well as new freon after it's cleaned. Accepting used freon is a great way to help minimize the impact freon has on the environment.

Freon gas becomes a liquid when pressurized inside your car's A/C system but returns to its gaseous state as it leaks out. Many drivers in Savannah are completely unaware that they are losing freon until the day when they turn on the car's AC and find only warm air blows out. Call 912-335-5766 and ask any of our auto repair specialists about recharging your car's AC. Stop by our store at 13 Ida J Gadsden Dr and we will show you the best AC recharging options for your car.

What Our Customers Are Saying

There are no MINI COOPER dealers in the Savannah area. Although I had taken my Mini in for service to a local BMW dealer, they did not diagnose that my starter was faulty (interrogating the key is not enough). CARma did a full diagnostic and also identified that, in a dictionary to my starter, I also needed new battery! I highly recommend this auto repair shop. I left feeling completely confident any issues with my MINI are resolved! Staff was friendly and kept me informed. Great job, team!

Carma is a great Auto Car repair center. We send several cars over for maintenance and they not only fix the problem, but perform a multi point inspection on the health of the vehicle to let us know if something else is wrong. We entrust them with our student training vehicles and they have never let us down. They provide the best service. Thank you Carma team for taking great care of us!

Had an unexplained issue with Jeep engine shutting down after putting transmission in Drive. It seemed like an engine / transmission-related problem. The folks at Carma analyzed the situation and identified a vacuum hose that had dried-out and was causing the problem. Quick fix at reasonable cost. They are now my go-to service shop.
